Differentiation through Learning Styles and Memory.
This book reviews how the brain processes, stores, and retains information and how teachers can guide students in accessing this information by utilizing their individual learning styles and strengths. It offers practical strategies and applications for accessing these sensory pathways, connecting learned content to the real world. Seven chapters focus on: (1) "Environments for Learning" (e.g., classroom environments and setting the stage); (2) "Learning Strengths" (e.g., sensory systems and perceptual patterns); (3) "A Matter of Memory" (e.g., phases of memory and categorizing memory); (4) "Differentiation Design: Remembering Visual Information" (e.g., differentiation design for learners with strong visual memory and Bloom's taxonomy and the visual learner); (5) "Differentiation Design: Remembering Auditory Information" (e.g., differentiation design for learners with strong auditory memory and Bloom's taxonomy and the auditory learner); (6) "Differentiation Design: Remembering by Doing" (e.g., kinesthetic memory and Bloom's taxonomy and the kinesthetic learner); and (7) "Putting it All Together" (e.g., identifying learning strengths and thinking about thinking). (Contains 96 bibliographic references.) (SM)
